Glasgow-born Stewart Sanderson is the recipient of several awards and commendations: in 2014 and 2016 he was shortlisted for the Edwin Morgan Poetry Award, and in 2017 received commendations from the PN Review Poetry Prize and the Stephen Spender Prize for poetry in translation. He received an Eric Gregory Award in 2015. In 2016 he was awarded a Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship, allowing him to spend a month working on new poems in Grez-sur-Loing, France. He completed a PhD at the University of Glasgow, which addresses the role of translation in twentieth-century Scottish poetry; his own versions from French and from Russian have been included in recent publications. His first pamphlet of poems, Fios, was published by Tapsalteerie, who have gone on to publish his second pamphlet, An Offering, in 2018.
